EVERTON VOLUNTEER AWARDS

I am really proud of the hardworking volunteers across my electorate and it’s important they are acknowledged for their fantastic work in the many schools, clubs, sporting clubs and community organisations.

This year Gladys Foley from The Nest Community was the recipient of ‘Volunteer of the Year Award 2019.  Gladys has worked as a volunteer for over 60 years and started volunteering at The Nest in 2016.  Every week Gladys coordinates over 60 volunteers and donates haberdashery resources to over 38 other communities.  Gladys is an inspirational senior leader and mentor and is well deserving of this award.

I want to congratulate other category winners:

Community Volunteer of the Year 2019 - Ian Anderson from Everton Park Scout Group

Sports Volunteer of the Year 2019 – Nick Elsey from Everton District Sporting Club and Everton Wolves

School Volunteer of the Year 2019 – Chrissie Faulkner from Northside Christian College

Young Volunteer of the Year 2019 – Joint Award: Jacob Mount from Mitchelton Day Club and Ryan Doolan from Everton District Sporting Club and Everton Wolves

I look forward to hosting this event again next year and want to thank all of those who were nominated for their outstanding work in the community.

Bridgeman Downs Neighborhood Watch

                                      

  

I want to thank Cass and Claire for taking the initiative to start the Bridgeman Downs Neighborhood Watch Group.  It was great to meet with some of the members at the recent BBQ get-together and talk about local issues.  Even the local Officer in Charge had a snag or two.

If you would like to start up your own Neighborhood Watch Group, please visit the website for more information: https://www.nhwq.org

Stafford and South Pine Rd Intersection Upgrade

Tue 2 Jul 2019

 

 

I've been fighting for the upgrades on this intersection for years, and have written to the Minister for Traffic and Main Roads, Mark Bailey, consistently since 2015.

At the last election, the State Labor Government matched my promise of $26 million for the Stafford Rd / Sth Pine Rd intersection upgrade, and $20 million of that should have been spent by the end of 2019/20.

According to the latest budget papers, only $9.629 million will be spent by the end of 2019/20 - not even half of the promise they committed to.  It's totally unacceptable and is another slap in the face for locals.  I have written again to the Minister and am asking for an explanation as to why this election promise has been broken. 

I will continue to fight for this upgrade and will keep you up to date with any progress.

Murphy's Paddock Update

Tue 13 Nov 2018
 
Whilst there have now been some changes to the plans for Murphy's Paddock, there is still no indication on how the traffic congestion on already choked back streets will be addressed.
 
I will continue to raise concerns from residents with Council and encourage you to do this too 
The more people that protest, the more chance there is for change.
